Always forward, never square? Dreamed of living in a tree, or sitting on a pole? The Cubes by architect Piet Blom (1934-1999) may be the answer to your family's travel needs. Starting in 2007 the famous Cubes, sometimes referred to as "Blaakse Bos" (Blaak Forest) for their proximity to train station Blaak, will be available for sleep-overs, offering 54 rooms with 257 beds. Have a lay-over at Schiphol airport with your posse? Consider the Cubes, the official name for the hostel has not been decided on, keep on checking back here at Hope Filled Jars.
